Protect the Ocean through Marine Laws

We are responding to environmental emergencies unlike anything we’ve seen before – and the choices made now are critical for the future of our oceans.

The Pacific coast is one of the world’s most spectacular marine ecosystems. Oceans provide so much for us. Every second breath we take comes from oxygen released by the ocean. Our well-being depends on a healthy coast and ocean – and we have an obligation to do everything we can to safeguard and protect them.

Your donation today can help West Coast’s Marine program by: 

  • Protecting special parts of the coast and ocean
  • Ensuring our ocean laws are strong and enforceable
  • Supporting Indigenous-led stewardship through Guardians programs and Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs)
  • Upholding Indigenous governance in coastal territories
  • Helping coastal communities adapt to climate change
  • Supporting a new provincial coastal strategy and accompanying BC Coastal Protection Act co-developed with Indigenous governments
  • And so much more!

You can make a difference and be a part of this important work with a 100% tax-deductible donation to the WCEL Research Foundation today.
